Church Martyrs "Scalia Gesture" Photographer

After Antonin Scalia lied about making an obscene gesture AT CHURCH (Scroll down this page), photographer Peter Smith did the right thing (Thou shalt not bear false witness) and released the photograph he snapped of the Supreme Court Embarrassment's gesture.

Naturally, the church fired Smith.

Boston Herald: Church fires photog over Scalia picture: Freelancer pays for ‘right thing’
By Jessica Heslam

A freelance photographer has been fired by the Archdiocese of Boston’s newspaper for releasing a picture of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia making a controversial gesture in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on Sunday.

Peter Smith, who had freelanced for The Pilot newspaper for a decade, lost the job yesterday after the Herald ran his photo on its front page. Smith said he has no regrets about releasing it.

“I did the right thing. I did the ethical thing,” said Smith, 51, an assistant photojournalism professor at Boston University.

Smith snapped the photo of Scalia flicking his hand under his chin after a Herald reporter asked the conservative jurist his response to people who question his impartiality on matters of church and state.

Polity does not make Scalia perfect.
